Monochrome Christmas Bears

Hi Everyone

It is the start of a new challenge today over at Monochrome Magic 


The theme for this month is Anything Goes Monochrome or Monochrome with a Twist of Christmas.  I do hope you can come on over and play along with me this month.

 Here is my DT inspiration card.  I adore this image called Igloo Bears from Pink Gem Designs and I coloured it up using Copics, Diamond Sparkles Glitter and a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen.  The sentiment is hand stamped using a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and is from Stampingallday.  I went for CAS Style but this has so much sparkle I didn't need anything else!

Cutest Christmas Penguin

Hi Everyone

I am here today to share with you one of the latest releases at Digi Doodle Studios 

I am not usually a fan of colouring penguins but I seem to have developed a fetish for colouring the DDS ones!

This cute digi is called Icey's Triple Dipper and I coloured him with Copics.  He was coloured using techniques from Kit and Clowder Online Colouring Classes 

You really need to visit the STORE and check out the new Christmas releases and all the other fabulously cute digis that are available.


I decided to print the image off quite large and make a CAS card.  I used Diamond Sparkles Glitter on the furry hat bits and also on the Ice Cream or Snow Cone as I think it might be called in winter!  The sentiment I hand stamped using a Memento Tuxedo Ink Pad and it is from Stampingallday.



There are more cute penguins available in the  STORE and in a couple of weeks you might just find another one appearing on my blog, so keep a look out for that lol.

Starry Ted

Hi Everyone

The new challenge starts today over at A Gem of A Challenge 



The theme for the next two weeks is Teddy Bears.

Here is my DT card using Football Teddy which I have coloured using ProMarkers.  I tend to go back to my ProMarkers when Bears are involved. It's like a comfort thing lol!

I made this card for my Son's friend who is 10 this month!

The Card blank is a 6" Square and the Footballl Background Card is from Buzzcraft.  I cut the stars using a nesting star die and added a football die cut too.

Christmas Cats

Hi Everyone

It is the start of this months challenge over at Creative Craft Cottage 



The theme for this month is The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.  We took a vote in the DT and decided that Christmas and Summer were the most popular but you may like Halloween or Spring.  I hope you can play along with us and share which is your favourite time of the year.

We have two sponsors for this challenge.  



and



I chose to work with an image from A Day For Daisies called  Little Cats Christmas
which I coloured with Copics and Chalks (for the light bulb glow) 

The Card is a 5" x 7" and the light bulb paper is from Helz Cuppleditch. Its glittery and textured too!  The sentiment I hand stamped and is from Stamping All Day.  I used a X-Cut Punch to round the corners of the image and the base layer.

Lovers Swing 40th Anniversary

Hi Everyone

I was asked by a friend to make a 40th Anniversary card for her parents.  She had a poem all picked out to go inside and chose this gorgeous image from Digi Doodle Studios called Lover's Swing for me to colour up which I did with Copics.  I then used a Go Kreate die to cut it out and layer it.

The Card is a 7" Square and the patterned paper is from WRS.  I typed the sentiment on the laptop before printing the image.  The heart die is an unnamed die and I finished with Clear Red Heart Gems.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges

Lollipop with a Tutorial!

Hi Everyone

It is the start of the new challenge over at Unicorn Challenge 


 The theme for this month is Stitching Real OR Faux (Not one of my favourite themes but we have a Stitcher on the DT and she chose this one lol!) She does some fabulous X Stitch if you would like to visit her blog HERE and leave her some comments she would love it. 

The iamge I used for my project is called Baby Words from Paper Nest Dolls

I have made one of my favourite types of cards for my DT project this time which is a Lollipop Card.  I have been asked several times how I make these so I am going to attempt to do step by step instructions for this post.  If I have missed anything out or you need to know anything else about how I made this then please feel free to email me at ljanners@hotmail.com or leave me a question in the comments and I will get back to you. I have never done a tutorial before so bear with me lol!

Step 1. I Cut out the image out using a Go Kreate circle die and then two larger circles one for layering and one for the reverse


                                                                                                                                                                                            






Step 2. I glued the frill onto both the front and back





 
 


 Step 3. I used red tape (double sided sticky tape) to attach the straw to one side.  I put some more on the top side ready to attach the back.  I also glued around the frill on both sides so that when they are sandwiched together they are secured with two layers of glue









Step 4. I pressed the back onto the front sandwiching the straw between both












Step 5.  I glued on the image.  If you have a message or info to go onto the back like baby's weight etc then print this info and cut out in a circle the same size as the image and glue on now






 

Step 6. I Added embellishments , bows, Roses etc




Step 7. My Lollipop is now finished!



I hope that you found this helpful in creating your own Lollipop Cards.  I love seeing the different ones around Blogland.
